ScruffyMatt If you were planning a Sonic marathon, which games would you consider vital to include, which ones would be maybes, and which games would you avoid at all costs? In this scenario, imagine that you have no time restraints, and the entire Sonic games library is available to you.

AE Double When it comes to series that focus on non-human characters and nobody liking the human characters (like Transformers and Godzilla), opinions on human characters in the Sonic series that aren’t Eggman? (We all know we love Eggman!)

Andrew D. You are each given the reigns to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighter Pass DLC. Anything within reason goes. That means any video game character can be chosen – potentially being able to break that rule, but within reason. Question: Who would you each personally choose for the five fighters, each of their stages, and some must haves for stage music? Bonus: Now lose one of those awesome choices because Joker was chosen. Who will you remove?

Jim Over the past year of the IDW Sonic comics we have seen three new male villains, and a possibly a third brand new female hero character based off one of the revealed Sonic Annual covers. I’m sure a major focus will be to further establish these new characters, but do you think we will we be seeing any new villainesses or male hero characters in the IDW comic series later on?  

Brodie M. Hey, guys. If Sega continued their partnership with Archie on the original Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series, how would you have celebrated the 300th issue and planned to reach 400 issues?  

James M. Ian, could pre-SGW Silver somehow be the love child of Amy and Shadow?
